“QUANTIQ is delighted to support the Diversity in Dynamics returnship programme. It offers a fantastic opportunity for people returning to work after a career break and will help to unlock an otherwise untapped pool of talent to help meet demand for experienced Dynamics delivery resources in the UK and across Europe.” – Derek Walton, CFO, QUANTIQ
When were returnships first introduced?
Returnships were first introduced in the United States by Goldman Sachs in 2008, then brought to Britain in 2014 by fellow investment banks Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank. Placements are typically between three and six months long and aim to brush up participants’ technology skills, boost their confidence through coaching and reacclimate them to the corporate landscape, often with the help of a mentor.
What is a returnship?
Returnships are higher-level internships which act as a bridge back to senior roles for experienced professionals who have taken an extended career break. They are professionally-paid short-term employment contracts, typically of 3-6 months, with a strong possibility of an ongoing role at the end of the programme. The idea is to quickly get these workers past the stigma of a long hiatus and prepare them to move back into full-time positions.
What is the Diversity in Dynamics returnship programme?
The Diversity in Dynamics returnship programme offers the opportunity for senior and high-calibre experienced individuals who have taken an extended career break and are keen to get back to their profession. We know that returning to work after a long break may not be easy, so we want to make this as successful and enjoyable for you as possible. The programme is designed to help you transition back into the work environment and give you an opportunity to upgrade your Dynamics skills.
We have chosen to invest in returnship programmes, in order to find and develop the right talent for our organisation because we’re dedicated to finding the best talent for the right roles in the world of Dynamics.
